that michelle knight was pregnant at least five times and that ariel castro starved her and punched her in the stomach resulting in the termination of those pregnancies. if you look at ohio law, it's very possible that this prosecutor could pursue aggravated death charges. i do believe if they can prove it, if they think they can prove it, they're on pretty some id legal ground in ohio. >> as we were talking about it, apparently, all sources, they have not found any human remains inside the house or outside the house, thus far, without medical proof that one of the women was pregnant and miscarried. could they still charge that? >> i preferred that eyewitness testimony. if you preferred someone like michelle knight on the witness stand talking about the horrors that they experienced and if the jury believes that michelle knight, in fact, went through this type of terror and having five pregnancies terminated, i don't know that a juror would let him off just because there's an absence of medical testimony. so, yeah, it's preferable to have the medical testimony. >> appreciate your expert
